Color Matching

In order to obtain an accurate, timely and quality Color Match to any existing surface inside or outside your home, please review the following procedures:

How can I Color Match an existing painted Surface?

Please provide a physical sample:

*Sample needs to be a minimum of 2″x2″ and be clean and sound in condition*


*Existing Paint Can with accurate color and wet sample. Sherwin-Williams formula stickers are acceptable.*

How can I Color Match a sample that is not a Sherwin Williams Paint?

Please provide a color chip/swatch (Recommended):
*Competitor formulas are not compatible crossovers without a wet sample
(ie. Behr, Benjamin Moore, Valspar etc.)

Can I Bring in a Removable Property Item to be Color Matched?

Removable Property (doors, shutters, etc.) surface needs to have flat area to scan:
*Sherwin Williams is not responsible for customer property that is left in the store*
*Sherwin Williams cannot match fabrics, magazines, photos (printed or digital).


**Sherwin Williams, Color-to Go quart samples are available for custom colors to ensure the customer approves of the way the sample looks at their home or business.**

All ‘Custom’ or ‘Existing Surface’ color match requests are to be processed through the following store location:
